Cognistat paper test
The Cognistat paper test formerly known as the Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination (NCSE). It is a test that examines neurological (brain and central nervous system) health in relation to a persons behavior. It is a cognitive screening instrument that assesses the five major ability areas: language, spatial skills, memory, calculations and reasoning.
Cognistat is presented to the patient in a face-to-face setting. Questions are presented by the examiner who records the patients responses. The patient interacts only with the examiner and is not required to fill in any forms or interact with a computer. The patient may be asked to rearrange colored tiles into specific patterns or to reproduce a line drawing from memory on a piece of paper. The examiner records the patient’s responses on the form provided and generates a graphic profile.
